I have been incredibly lucky to have had such wonderful mentors over the course of my career and I strive to do the same for others.
I'm always happy to help people who are interested in design and emerging technology, just drop me a line. I try to focus on time with under-represented minorities who are interested in the field, or who are looking to take a next step in their careers and want someone to help them hone a specific skill, whether that means working through some side projects or on pitching/storytelling.
If you are looking for a more involved mentoring engagement, I am currently mentoring through Hexagon UX. Whether you're a design mentor or mentee, I definitely recommend applying to Hexagon's Mentorship program, as there are chapters worldwide, and mentorship programs in the Bay Area, Seattle, NYC, London, and Houston.
If Hexagon UX doesn't work for you, here are some fine organizations that have inspired me and who would be able to help you find like‐minded people to connect with:
- Within, a collection of content and experiences for women in design and technology
- People of Craft, a showcase of creatives of colour
- Pixelles Montreal, mentorship for women (cis/trans) wanting to join the games industry
- Geek Girl Con, a local Seattle con for female geeks and their supporters
I'm so inspired by other peoples' stories and I look forward to hearing yours.
Product Process and UX Toolkits
Many mentees and coworkers have asked me how they can develop their design practice further, or onboard members of their team to design workflows and tools. I'm currently developing some toolkits that we can use and share. Please get in touch with me if you would like early access.
